West St. Peter Street in New Iberia has been closed while crews repair a broken gas line in the area. Officials have created a detour route consisting of Hopkins Street, Admiral Doyle Drive, and Center Street. Sheriff's deputies say a backhoe working near the corner of St. Peter and French Streets struck the gas line, causing a leak. They say no evacuations are in place.
